7/1

Thrice-raced maiden shaped with some potential in a couple of races including lone run this season when fourth at Naas. Steps up to 7f for first time and ought to be fitter in first handicap attempt.

Maiden of 11 races and with third trainer already. Shaped well two starts back over today's trip at Gowran but ran poorly subsequently at Leopardstown. Not the most appealing CV.

6f Dundalk winner in December but yet to build on that. Some fair efforts this season on turf without massively threatening. Handicapper is assisting her so sooner or later she should go close again.

Promising efforts at the back end of last season in first two handicap attempts but making her belated return here against race fit rivals makes life tougher.

11 race maiden has shown some promise on the AW but unplaced in all six previous runs on turf. Synthetic surface form would be competitive but appears less of a force on turf so others make more appeal.

Just average efforts in three maidens so far with debut third of nine arguably the best of them. Would need to improve to feature off this mark on her handicap debut.

Back-to-back handicap seconds at Fairyhouse (of nine) and at Gowran (of 15) suggest she is a filly on the up. Gets an additional 2lb on her back here but looks a leading contender in a race where few can boast such form.

Left previous form behind when a 25/1 winner at Down Royal last month in first-time hood which is retained here. Up 5lb now but could be a reformed character now with the headgear so has to be considered.

Beaten 24L, 21L and 17½L in last three starts. Handicapper only takes minor remedial action so very hard to fancy here.

Looked likely to be suited by step up to 7f and ran a better race latest over the trip when sixth before getting disqualified after jockey failed to weigh-in. Each-way chances with 2lb taken off.

Little encouragement in three handicaps all over different trips this term. 3lb lower now after latest ninth of 13 at Gowran but that unlikely to be enough.

Showed some pace in sprint maidens at Navan (third of eight) and Naas (fifth of 11) the last twice. Step up in trip for handicap debut not necessarily what she is looking for.

Promising second of 18 first time out at Fairyhouse and decent sixth of 15 there next. Shade disappointing latest at Gowran but no obvious reason she can't play her part here.

Not beaten too far in any of his last four starts with latest running on sixth of 16 over 6f suggesting return to this trip would suit. Considerable assistance of champion jockey today and leading player.

4½L eighth of 15 at Leopardstown latest was comfortably her best run to date. Given a break since but has some hope here with 4lb taken off and wearing a first-time hood.

Unplaced in all 12 career starts. Soundly beaten the last twice over 5f and 13½L behind when last trying this trip. Easy to pass over.

Beaten just two rivals in three career starts to date. Lots to prove as she steps into handicaps for first time despite feather weight.

Betting

Forecast

Finvarra (11/2), Idalia (7/1), Roman Gal (7/1), Lady Sonia (9/1), Beau Rocko (10/1), Ar Saoirse (10/1), Phoenix Lightning (12/1), Realtin Geal (12/1), Very Smart (12/1), Piper Bomb (14/1), Bercasa (14/1), Goneinsixtyseconds (14/1), Button Popper (16/1), Nancy D'Alton (16/1), Patrick Joseph (16/1), La Novia (16/1), Dandy Sue (20/1), My Lark (25/1), Mr Whoppit (33/1), Lady Sandy (50/1), Louve Island (50/1)

Verdict

IDALIA has knocked at the door the last twice with excellent efforts in second on each occasion. Few here have such positive form and those who do are mostly inconsistent types so she looks the safest bet. Beau Rocko looks capable of going close sooner rather than later and stepping back up to this trip would appear a positive so he gets maximum respect. Unexposed Roman Gal might benefit for the extra furlong in her handicap debut so she isn't overlooked either.
